Puvirnituq-Ivujivik-UQAT Teacher training Program co-management since 1984: Continuity and change elements - Glorya Pellerin, Véronique Paul, Virginie D. de la Chevrotière, Lucy Qalingo, Elisapi Uitangak
More than 35 years went on since the creation of the co-management group for the Inuit teacher training programs of Ivujivik-Puvirnituq and Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue (UQAT). Three principal areas are the core of this partnership, realised in trilingual and bicultural context: the teacher training for the Inuit, the curriculum and educational material development in Inuktitut, and the links between the school and the communities. Even if the focus of the collaboration are still maintained, we observe some modifications in the articulation of the contents and in the working methods adapted to the XXIst century realities. This work experience, lasting since more than a quarter century within the co-management group members, was subject of a reflection and an analysis. This communication aims to present first an historical review of the development of this partnership followed by elements of continuity in the work practice, markers of changing work context, partnership relation characteristics and some reflections avenues aroused by this collaboration.
